The therapeutic efficiency and safety of the proteolytic enzyme bromelaine obtained from pineapple (Bromelain-POS, Ursapharm GmbH, Saarbrücken, Germany) was evaluated in children under the age of 11 years diagnosed with acute sinusitis. Data from 116 patients from 19 centres located across Germany were analysed in a pharmacoepidemiological cohort study. Patient cohorts were either treated with Bromelain-POS (N = 62), in combination with Bromelain-POS and standard therapies (N = 34), or with… Expand
Efficacy of a combination of fixed doses of serratiopeptidases, bromelain and methylsulfonylmethane in inflammatory joint diseases
Rheumatic diseases are traditionally treated using symptomatic drugs (NSAIDs Nonsteroidal Anti-Inflammatory Drugs) and specific drugs. Nevertheless, the inhibitory effect of traditional NSAIDs,Expand
Use of honey associated with Ananas comosus (Bromelin) in the treatment of acute irritative cough
TLDR
It is possible that honey has a therapeutic effect on mucus and cough characteristics and was similar in patients treated with combination of Ananas comosus extract and honey compared with the use of honey alone (placebo group). Expand
Therapeutic efficacy of bromelain in impacted third molar surgery: a randomized controlled clinical study.
TLDR
An important anti-inflammatory and anti-edematous effect of bromelain is demonstrated in reducing postoperative pain and swelling in patients attending impacted third molar surgery. Expand
Phytoneering: a new way of therapy for rhinosinusitis
TLDR
The current literature suggests that phytotherapy is an effective and safe form of ancillary treatment for rhinosinusitis and in particular, herbal drugs made with the technique of phytoneering have proven effective in acute rhinesinusitis. Expand
ETHNOBOTANICAL AND PHARMACOLOGICAL PROPERTIES OF PINEAPPLE PROTEASE (BROMELAIN): A REVIEW
Bromelain (EC 3.4.22.32) is a crude extract from the fruit or stem of pineapple (Ananas cosmosus Linn.) plant that contains, among other components various closely related proteinases (stemExpand
Potential role of bromelain in clinical and therapeutic applications.
TLDR
Bromelain is widely administered for its well-recognized properties, such as its anti-inflammatory, antithrombotic and fibrinolytic affects, anticancer activity and immunomodulatory effects, in addition to being a wound healing and circulatory improvement agent. Expand
The potential use of bromelain as a natural oral medicine having anticarcinogenic activities
Abstract Bromelain (BR), a protease extracted from Ananas comosus, reportedly possesses pharmacological activities including the reduction of thrombogenesis, and antihypertensive, and antimicrobialExpand
Topical treatment of rhinosinusitis
TLDR
No weighable evidence of effectiveness supports the premise that topical treatments actually serve the purpose for which they are widely prescribed in pediatrics, except in the case of topical steroids. Expand
Purification of bromelain from pineapple wastes by ethanol precipitation
Abstract Bromelain is an aqueous extract of pineapple that contains a complex mixture of proteases and non-protease components. These enzymes perform an important role in proteolytic modulation ofExpand

TLDR
Signs and symptoms in patients on complementary therapy with OE during postoperative treatment were significantly less and there was evidence of a beneficial influence of OE on time to event, although the median observation time was too short in these breast cancer patients to draw definite conclusions.

TLDR
Otolaryngologists's role in the management of sinusitis goes beyond treatment of referred patients and also includes the responsibility to educate referring physicians in improved diagnostic methods and earlier, more effective forms of therapy. Expand
Isolation and partial characterization of basic proteinases from stem bromelain
TLDR
Crude bromelain extracts from pineapple stems (Ananas comosus) were fractionated by two-step FPLC-cation-exchange chromatography and revealed that F9 differs from the determined sequence of F4 and F5 by an exchange at position 10 (tyrosine→serine) and position 20 (asparagine→ glycine). Expand

TLDR
In conclusion, acute sinusitis is common among symptomatic patients and Radiography and clinical evaluation appear to provide useful information for diagnosis of Sinusitis. Expand

TLDR
Based on the knowledge that acute tracheitis, laryngitis and common cold are normally caused by viral agents, it seems reasonable not to use antibiotics for those patients, and the clinical differentiation between viral and bacterial upper respiratory tract infections is difficult and sometimes not possible.
